Quote from: "peter"i think they should use the mickey's toontown fair buildings from wdw. they get rid of them this year, and dlp's motto is reuse, reuse and then reuse again.
QuoteUnfortunately DLRP doesn't make any money compared to WDW and it doesn't attract as many people to the resort as WDW did back then. I would be very happy to see one new attraction in each park, like Ratatouille in WDS and ST II or Little Mermaid in DLP, but I doubt it. I think that the Rat will be the only new ride. Hopefully Disney didn't postpone it for another bunch of cheap carnival rides.
Quote from: "dagobert"Last year Philippe Gas, CEO of ED SCA, said in an interview that DLRP has neough money on the side to pay off dept and to finance the expansion."Honestly, we have enough cash today to pay our debt, to finance our expansion and to pay for rehabilitation [of current attractions in the park]," highlighted Mr Gas, denying recent speculation that the company came close to breaching banking covenants.
Quote from: "Austin Danger Kelly"Quote from: "mattboywonder"I'd love to see them do something like a special limited run version of 'Phantom Manor' using the soundtrack recorded by Vincent Price that was orignally intended for the park.What soundtrack is that? I didnt know he made more than one.

QuoteOn the surface, "Believe" is a similar show to "The Golden Mickeys." At the beginning, a story and new characters are introduced, and these characters then take the audience through a series of scenes from Disney animated films. But "Believe" has plenty of uniqueness in that it tends to stick to less commonly-heard songs. Where "The Golden Mickeys" has "Under the Sea," "You've Got a Friend in Me," and "Cruella DeVil," prominently-featured songs in "Believe" include "Step in Time," "Bare Necessities," and "Gonna Take You There," among others. If you don't recognize all the songs, don't worry, as they're pulled from the slightly more obscure songbook from Disney classic films.It all begins with a gardner worrying about his new species of flower as his daughter, Sophia, celebrates her birthday with excitement about a new magic wand she has received:The dad promises Sophia that they'll spend some birthday time together later, but at the moment he needs to prepare his special new flower for presenting to a flower society -- or something. Sophia insists that magic and a bit of pixie dust will help her father's flower while he assures her that magic is not real and only science will do the job. The duo then erupt into song, singing what is presumably titled "What Makes the Garden Grow," as they repeat that line many times throughout the 3-minute number.The song and characters are a bit tough to take in at the top of the show, as they're not within the usual Disney world that's so familiar to the watching audience. Sophia's voice, intentionally childlike and high-pitched, borders on shrill at times, and the father's performance and characterization is quite reminiscent of Barry Bostwick's Brad in "Rocky Horror." It's not until roughly 7 minutes into the show that anything Disney shows up.But once the Disney begins, it begins in full force, with the introduction of the always-over-the-top-in-a-good-way Genie from Aladdin:To assure the father that he is really an all-powerful Genie and not just a prank, he breaks into the obligatory "Friend Like Me" number:But this is not the Aladdin musical at the Disney California Adventure theme park. The all-amusing Genie takes the father on a journey through magical Disney scenes, only occasionally firing jokes at contemporary non-Disney topics (like Madonna's newfound not-so-British accent). As the show progresses, the Genie conjures up characters and scenes not often seen on stage, beginning with Merlin from The Sword in the Stone:Mary Poppins follows by flying in via umbrella, but after an abridged version of "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious," she's joined by Bert and other chimney sweeps for a dance-filled performance of the film's less famous song, "Step in Time":The audience is later treated to a unique performance of "Bare Necessities" by a walking, talking, and blinking Baloo:But the highlight of "Believe," for me, is the sequence from The Princess and the Frog. The film may have been Disney's return to traditional hand-drawn animation, but this live-action scene is filled with energetic performers and toe-tapping jazz:Even Princess Tiana's friend Charlotte makes an appearance:Of course, a show about Disney magic called "Believe" wouldn't be complete without a few Disney PrincessesBy the show's conclusion, the characters -- and the audience -- believe in Disney magic, as it has been created in a stage performance fit for Broadway, but currently enjoyed in the Caribbean.
Quote from: "Festival Disney"I noticed the Mission 2 poster peeling back in December... they still haven't fixed it!?!?! The cannon should atleast have smoke, I hold no hope for the recoil action anymore As for the Cartons and the rest of the sh*t that idiots throw into the water features, I see no reason why the cleaning crew can't reach this crap with their litter pickers, or even a long pole of sorts... I think eurodisney need to get a different overnight cleaning company in to be perfectly honest... The one they have doesn't get the park up to the Disney standard.
